Katy Perry, the Covergirl Ambassador, made the announcement this week.

James Charles has over 600k followers on his Instagram account that he just started a little over a year ago. He gained popularity last month when his posted about retaking his senior photos because he wasn’t sure about how his cheek bones would look. That was the only boost that he needed because now he is the new face of the brand.

“I am so honored and excited to be working with such an iconic brand,” he wrote on his personal Instagram. “I started my Instagram one year ago to inspire others and as an artistic outlet to challenge myself creatively. I truly hope that this shows that anyone and everyone can wear makeup and can do anything if you work hard.”
